    Yea but is there anything unique about them is what I want to know. I'm a Ford fan but if dodge makes a product worth looking at i'll set my brand loyalty a side and visit a dodge dealership.

    Then again I just got a job at a Ford dealer selling new/ used cars and trucks so Never Mind! lol But still... any dirt on them or what do you think about them? Think they will make Ford and GM sweat?

    Hopefully the war gets more intense and we see the best of the three manufacturers. Thats what I love... we benefit from their fight.

    Ford and GM are not going to sweat one bit. the quality is still not there in a dodge...i would continue to stay with ford in my honest opinion. they make much better trucks. and the new 6.4 powerstroke is going to be hard to beat. but im curious to see the new 6.7 cummins, and what the Lmm duramax will do.

    The new dodges are looking pretty darn nice to me. The 2008 ford and Chevy's have the ugliest front ends Ive ever seen.

    I just wish all the manufactures would build trucks that get better mileage! We now have all the power we could need, now we need beter mileage!
